Teachers will find this highly practical guide invaluable for teaching the academic terms and the domain-specific vocabulary that students will need to comprehend complex text. Clearly written and research-based, the guide is the best go-to resource for vocabulary instruction on the market. --Susan B. Neuman, Professor, Teaching and Learning, New York University

The part of the book I found most useful was Marzano's six-step process of teaching a word, which is based on the principle that the more exposure students receive on a word, the more they enhance their vocabulary. The first stage consists on the teacher's explanation of the word, including providing examples; the second stage has the student restate that explanation and provide his own examples; the third stage requires the student to illustrate the definition of the word; at the fourth stage, students would be exposed in multiple forms to the word; during the fifth stage students will discuss words with peers; and finally, the teacher reinforces the vocabulary through exciting vocabulary games. Although the process seems simple, the authors provide their audience with a thorough discussion for each stage. In addition to this, Marzano does not ignore institutional factors that might affect vocabulary teaching, discussing how it is better for a group of teachers to meet to plan vocabulary instruction in their school. Moreover, additional sections serve as reference to key words for each subject matter that should be taught under the CCSS. The authors support well the theoretical foundations for teaching vocabulary.
A caveat: although English Language Arts is included, English as a second language is not addressed. Nevertheless, this does not prevent me from applying any principle or suggestions presented in this book. Thus, I found this book quite useful and accessible.
